Gold Raffle 2020 
Everyone is a winner this year!  Unexpected challenges faced everyone earlier this year (coronavirus and social distancing restrictions) and we were challenged with "how do we hold our club's 31st annual Gold Raffle?  Thanks to our illustrious Gold Raffle Committee who dug deep, pulled strings, got their creative juices flowing we found a way.  Thanks to EVERY club member who promoted the raffle, sold tickets, purchased tickets and generally became cheerleaders we were able to pull it off!  Mini of San Antonio dealership generously offered to host our very first virtual, live broadcast.  By way of facebook and zoom, attendees logged on for a fun filled event!  The biggest hurdle - selling all 300 tickets - seemed impossible.  Thanks to the hard work of everyone who volunteered to sell, we sold 100% of the tickets before the big day.  Thank you one and all for the part that you played to make this year's raffle a smashing success.
